#414 I Think Of You - Poem by Jimmie Arrington

In life there are long days, long nights,
There are callous words, futile fights.
There's hate and anger in the streets
And just before all love depletes,
Jill, I certainly think of you,
Then there's love in my heart anew.

There are times rules do not apply
And times when the innocent die.
There's sorrow, mourning, and regret
And wounds and scars I can't forget.
Then Jude, I love to think of you
And I no longer feel so blue.

I wear my gun, my boots, my star
Because the world is so bizarre.
I carry on but want to quit,
I wonder if it's all worth it.
Then Sam, I quickly think of you
And my eyes see a clearer view.

Then there's times everything goes right,
The sun goes down, the moon shines bright.
The world's at peace inside my head
And joy fills up my heart instead.
Then Holly, I just think of you
And the future's a brighter hue.
